Bryan Jackson is a long-time public relations professional, writer and former broadcast journalist. He has served as Press Officer to two New York State Governors, covered politics and government as State Capitol Bureau Chief for the National Broadcasting Company, as well as for several New York City broadcast stations. His career also includes broadcast station construction and ownership.
His interest in the Titanic began as a teenager after reading Walter Lord’s book A Night to Remember. He has since spent extensive time researching the ship and the events which lead to her sinking, including interviewing Titanic’s last survivor, Mellvina Dean and George Tulloch, who became Salvor-in-Possession of the Titanic and made five dives to the wreck site.
Today, he continues to explore Titanic’s story and occasionally lectures on the disaster. In addition to writing, he also serves from time to time as a substitute teacher and often shares his research and knowledge of the Titanic with his students.
Bryan is married to his wife, Nora, and lives with their two dogs, Patches and Bo, in upstate New York.
